Last week we had three variants on a Subaru Legacy Outback theme: the sedan, the pick up, and the classic lifted wagon. Today we look at two other wagons that helped promote the lifted wagon craze as well as a later Legacy from the well respected fourth generation. Do you prefer a Japanese, German, or Swedish…
My coworker just bought a 2016 Subaru Outback, so I took the opportunity to take a few pictures with my 1998 Subaru Legacy Outback. Despite vastly different styling, you can definitely see the family resemblance. The overall length, ground clearance, and roof height are surprisingly similar.
Last year we travelled back to the Isle of Man to watch the TT races and do some fun stuff with Subaru. With us was Jeff Glucker (Hooniverse), John Lamb (Automobile Magazine), Marty Padgett (High Gear Media) and Photog Ian Merrit. Here’s a new video from that adventure.
So Ive been window shopping for a replacement for the Monte Carlo (aka the blue turd) and came across this Impreza. Anyone have opinions or comments on the 2000 Imprezas? My wife drives a 2009 2.5i and we really like it.
In March 2014 I was forced to get a new car, and got my Subaru BRZ. As a rally fan I’ve always liked the WRX, but the 2014 models were gone, and the new version for 2015 wasn’t being made yet. But what if it was? If BRZ vs WRX was a choice I had to make today, which would I choose?
OH MY GOD ITS A P1800!!! Okay, got that out of my system. I screamed when I saw it. I then took off a little quickly from the line (I love my car and driving) and had a little fun with this:
That looks sweeeet.
Such a completely unexpected news article coming from BTCC that Subaru have entered the BTCC with the Levorg being driven by Jason Plato and Colin Turkington
The concept of a winter beater was a foreign to me for a long time, because when I lived in places with harsh winter weather I already drove pretty crappy used cars. Then, before a particularly good winter in Vermont, I got a new Toyota Tacoma, and someone had the audacity to ask me if I was going to daily drive it…
Winter is here, holidays are winding down, and driving in the snow belt is getting challenging again. It makes me think of what car I really wish I had to combat all this, and have some fun in the bleakness of winter. And I have plenty of time to think about it.
We went out to TRF (Thompson Racing Fabrication - the guys behind the caging of the Brakimghini) to do some tall driver/co-driver modeling for seat placement and head clearance for their real wheel drive- rally rental BRZ.
May your day be filled with the warmth of friends and family, and also some obligatory car-related warmth as well! :P
Saw the Google Street View Subaru Impreza in my town this evening. It seemed Mr. Google Street View Man was out stretching or something. Wish I was able to stop and chat but I didn’t have time. Wonder how many miles are on those Subaru's.
On my tombstone they will carve, IT NEVER GOT ECONOBOX ENOUGH FOR ME. I was a slave to those small engines, those dizzying peaky horsepower numbers lower than the fuel economy sticker, those Macpherson Struts. I’m getting sweaty just thinking about it. But mopeds? That was a bridge too far, or so I thought.
Here’s some updates on my car. I made mudflaps out of IKEA cutting boards. (Oh and I stickerbombed the front left quarter panel months ago). This picture is after driving 35 miles on a slushy highway. No slush/dirt on the sides or rear of the car (yay mudflaps).
New episode of Launch Control goes behind the scenes at STI in Japan with Bucky Lasek.
